Leading with Strategic Advantage

This high level course is typically intended for senior managers/directors.  It is aimed at helping leaders move from a day to day "solutions focus" mind set to developing high level strategic thinking.  You will understand the core elements of a practical "strategy toolkit" that will lead to your business having the competitive advantage you need.

The course is spread over 2 days with a 4 month gap in between to allow attendees to work on some of the strategic tools we will be looking - focusing on the translation of theory into their business. A 1:1 Coaching Session and support from the trainer will be offered in between the 2 sessions.

The 2 day course is made up of a broad range of elements of strategic analysis theory/techniques that are then applied to your organisation. Whilst the course will be tailored to attendees needs, envisage component elements are as follows:
